tennis is mostly about match ups and surface though, not previous performances against certain players

Re: WWW Wimbledon R1,Battle of the LUCIEs: Safarova v Hradecka

Both are my faves, but I like Šafářová more -- so I hope she beats Hradecká.

Anyway, I hate it when my faves face each other so early in a tournament.

Kvitova ~ Šafářová ~ Garcia ~ Madison Keys

Cetkovská ~ Hradecká ~ Siniaková ~ Gavrilova ~ Bencic ~ Allertova ~ Smitkova ~ Makarova ~ Chakvetadze ~ Laura Robson ~ Pliskova twins

Czech Rep is so unlucky at Wimbledon. I think there is 2 all-Czech matches in first round plus possible R2: Zakopalova v Safarova/Hradecka

Yeah. And Petra, Andrea, Klára, Barbora, Kateřina, Zuzana, Martina and Tereza are common first names as well; just check the first names of the Czech players on the WTA ranking:
